Here are some pictures of some painting illustrations that my friend actually made. I attached her instagram in one of these pictures. I have a digital portrait in my room of a piece of her work that she made for me. Her work is really great and she is working on her craft. The first picture if of Pharell, the second is of ASAP rocky, and the third is a painted cubist piece of the Notorious BIG, Jay-Z and Nas.
My friend LaVan Wright, a Tattoo Artist, Graphic Designer, Clothing Designer and Painter makes some pretty cool illustrations of cartoons. I would like to learn how to incorporate real photos into a photoshopped or illustrated image like he does in the picture of the cartoon woman sitting on his lap.
